    What's your favorite snake oils, gimmicks, products?

    Mine: Marvel Mystery Oil- helps keep carbs clean and helps with ethanol gas.
    Valvoline engine oil, Vaseline- keeps battery terminals from corroding, keeps gas cap from sticking, PJ1 chain lube for street use. JB Weld for stripped fastener repair, non-critical case of other repairs. Lucas heavy duty oil stabilizer- some may not recommend this but I have used about 1-2 ounces when clutches began slipping and this prevented slippage. Scorpian AGM battery. IMS shift lever.

    Marvel Misery Oil. For all the reasons you other guys give, plus it smells good.

    I also like the pre-mixed gas at Home Depot (Lowes, etc.) for my legacy 2 cycle tools. It is expensive but has a shelf life of 2+ years.
